Another Hospital Visit..

Well, I had to take advantage of Canada’s marvelous free health care once more after catching my engineering ring (worn on the pinky) on a screw head that held a sign to a wall.  The ring got mangled and my finger got sliced all around and the circulation was cut off.  It was quite a debacle once I got to the hospital, their ring cutter wasn’t working and the fire department had to be called and it took them 3 burly firefighters, a dremel and some borrowed tools from Tony (of YNOT, who rushed over with Marnie) to cut through the ring and bend it apart to finally get it off me.  The timing could hardly be worse, I FINALLY got my new Vandal all together and we have a weekend of freak beautiful weather at the end of November BUT I can’t ride!  It’s killing me!

Here are some gross pictures of my finger, I’ll post some final pictures of my bike right after!

This is what it looked like post-hospital.

My hand and the mangled ring.  Ugh, this is frustrating, I want to ride SO bad!!

Here’s an update shot of Ruby, she’s a big fuzzy awesome beast now!
